People la the Tropics Don't Indole Much la Frosea Water Not Kaseatlal to Comfort. According to the consular report more ice is consumed in Chicago during- hours of hot weather than Is con sumed Uy all the Latin American states except Mexico in 12 months. In Chi cago ice is considered a necessity all the year round, and in the Latin states it is considered in bum places a luxury in veil; hot weather, but not an over deairablc luxury. There are meiUcal men. says the Chicago Chronicle, who attribute the longevity of life In the tropics to the absence of Ice-cold wa ter and beverages, which force an un natural and hurtful temperature of the fltomoch and open the system to dis ease attacks with little or no power of resistance. This is especially true, they say. of those who are subjected to much physicul exercise, for cold drinks greatly chock the system without ma terially quenching thirst. The nights in the tropics are nearly always cool, which enables butchers to prepare meat in the evening for the next day's consumption without fear of it spoiling mesttwhile. As for fruits and vegetables, i are so plentiful all the year round j cheap that it does not pay lo? the expense of erecting cold storage houses or keep ing refrigerators to preserve them. So while nat m elius not provided the Lat in American states with Ice-making weather, it has provided them with a climate and ground productions' whleh make ice not an absolute necessity. The laws of nature always conserve man's best interests. Most of the principal cities in the Central and South American etatea have one or more small lee factories, but none of them can find a market for the production. This comes in part from the inability of the people to pay the price, which runs all the way from one cent to eight or more cents a pound, in part from no pressing; desire to have ice and In part from a supersti tion that ice, especially manufactured ice, Is not healthy. It may be said that family ice consumption is conflneden- j tircly to the wealthy and those in fair circumstances, and they buy it in quart titles merely sufficient to serve ice wa ter and cool wines at mealtime. It is believed, however, that if the factories would introduce improved machinery so as to reduce the cost of production and then manufacture the article in large quantities at low prices to con sumers the people would in time give them support. The New Orleans and QaLveston ice factories are trying to build up a trade In Central and norlhernSouth America, but the waste by melting is so great that there ia little if any profit in the business. It is said an American com pany ia talking of constructing a num ber of fl.oat.ing ice plants, which they popoae to move from coast town to coast town ns occasion and demand may seem to justify. Hut it is clearly to be seen by the consular reports that two things will have to be done before the ice trade in the Latin states will amount to much. The cost of ice must be reduced so as to meet the ability of the people to pay and the people must .be educated into looking upon it as a necessity rather than an expensive and unimportant luxury. Hut American money and enterprise is at work anil if possible ice will be made a popular commercial commod ity in the tropics. What It Was. "What is your age?" asked the law yer.

He added and spake a parable, because lie etas nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that tbe kingdom of God should Immediately appear. 12. He said therefore: A certain noble esan went Into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. It. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto (hem: Occupy till I come. 14. But hie clllsens hated him. and sent a message after him, saying: We will aot have this man to reign over us. 16. And It came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the king dom, then he commanded these servants te be called unto him, to whom be had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. M. Then came the flrat, ssylng: Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. IT. And he said unto him: Well, thou good servant, because thou hast been faith ful In a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 11 And the second csme, ssylng: Lord, thy pound hath gained Ave pounds. It. And he said Ukawlse to him: Be thou also over five cities. to. And another came, aaylng: Lord, be hold, here Is thy pound, which 1 have kept laid up In a napkin: 21. For I feared thee, because thou ai t an austere man: thou takest up that thou layest not down, and rtapsst that thou didst not sow. 22. And he said unto him: Out of thine own mouth will I Judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money Into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? 24. And he said unto them that stood by: Take from him the pound, and give It to him that hath ten pounds. 25. (And they said unto him: Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26. For I say unto yen: Ttat unto every one which hath shall be given; und from him that hath not. even that he hath shall be taken away from him. 27. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. GOLDEN TEXT Every one of aa shall stive account of himself to God. Horn. 14il3. NOTES AND COMMENTS. This lesson in circumstance and sur roundings as well as In our (lospel rec ord immediately follows tJie last. Jesus was speaking ;o the same people as at the house of Zaccheua murmured that He had gone to be a guest with a sinner, but He was also speaking to a great multitude who had accepted Him as the Messiah and were expecting "that the kingdom of God should imme diately appear." He was traveling to ward Jerusalem, was only IS or 20 miles from that city, and the multitude ex pected Jesus was there, and there to establish Ills earthly reign. The para ble was a warning to them. Jesus, like the nobleman, waa to receive His king dom, indeed, but, also like the noble man. He would have to go away to re ceive it; that is, He waa to die. The nobleman, we are to understand, was not to receive some distant kingdom, but was to go to some distant place where the chief authority resided in or der to be made king over his home prov ince, where he would reign. The object of tbe parable was to show those who expected Jesus to immediately found an earthly kingdom how to wait in faithful, pa tint service for the coming of the kingdom. LfiSSON ANALYSIS. The Nobleman and His Kingdom. ..Vs. 11-12 The Ten Pounds V. U The Accounting Vs. l!i -:'ii The Rebellious Citizens Vs. 14-:'7 The Nobleman and His Kingdom. As explained in the introductory para graph, the nobleman w as to be king not over a distant kingdom, but over the province which he was leaving for a time. The length of his absence was for an indefinite period. The Ten Hounds. Ortain of his cares had to be shouldered by others during this absence. Like a wise man. be did not entrust the whole to any one servant, but divided the work share and share alike among ten servants. There is one interesting point about this para ble that is not brought out in the sim ilar parable where one servant was given five pounds, another two, and a third only one pound. Here every mau bad only one pound. Different men of different abilities used this pound. No complaint was made that the pound waa not enough for the abilities of the servant, but the greater ability was so used to make more of the pound which was entrusted to his care. One man did not put his pound to anj use at all. He kept it and returned it. As far as mere honesty was concerned, no fault could be found. Hut he had not done that which be had been left to do. The nobleman had said: "Oc cupy till I come." He meant that it should be used and invested. The no bleman iaad not said' anything about how much should be returned. He was merely to make the best possible use of it. Had be lost itin a legitimate way no fault could have been found, but he had not obeyed his master. He had made no use whatever of bis talent. The Kebellious Citizen. The refer ence to the citizens who did not want the nobleman to be king and who had protested against his authority was meant as a warning to the enemies of tbe kingdom Jesus come to establish. Jesus' kingdom was aurely to come on earth. Some time right will ultimately triumph. Tbe entire deatruction of the forces of evil is the only logical out come. Wheat aad ChaST.

In tho ftrst place we are to recall that Jeaua waa tbe Son of God. This gives authority to Hia teachings. Hia coming waa heralded by the angels, His star waa aeen by the wise men of the east, and other signs showed that He waa no ordinary man, but the promised Messiah sent to redeem His people, and having in Himself the es sence of the Divine nature. He wee the Son of Man, being a lineal deacendant of David, king of Israel, and having for His mother the Virgin Mary. Being the Son of Man, "He was tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin." This gives us affinity with Jesus Christ and furnishes the promise that through Him, the God-Man, we may rise above our lower and meaner selves and come into fellowship with all that is divine. Keeall the opportunities of the time 1 of Jesus' coming. This was no acci dent, but a part of the divine plan. There has been no other period in all j history when all the nations of the ; known civilized world were included In one great empire, and this under ' Itoman rule. This meant universal peace, that there was one language that could be generally understood, and easy access to all parts. The Jews had gone into every land, and, being an essentially religious people, carried with them the Old Tes tament writings as we know them. Becall the childhood and youth of Jesus and Ills probable surroundings. advantageous and otherwise. Itcmem I ber that all Jewish children had abun- dant opportunity to become familiar ! .-ith (he Scriptures, and thit :it Nazareth. His childhood home and a scrt of International crossroads, lie would come into contact with all types -jf people. Into the midst of all this place the picture of the boy Jesus at the age of 12, seeking to learn of the Jewish rabbis, and the purpose of His life which was thus early brought out by the question: "Wist ye not that I must be ulioui my Father's business?" Then comes the introduction to Hil public ministry. The first event was the preaching of John the Haptist then the baptism of Jesus; third), the descent of the Holy Spirit, and last, His temptation in the wilder ness. For 40 days He thought and prayed and fasted. Here with His life before Him He was met by the three greatest temptations that could come to a man of His human tempera ment and capacities. The first was the temptation to command the stones to become bread. This may be in terpreted aa the temptation to put physical and' matet'al things above that which la spiritual. The second was to cast Himself from a pinnacle into the crowded court of the temple. This would have gained him immedi ate recognition, but not so could He become the redeemer of the world. Tho last temptation was to become the recognized ruler of all the king doms of the earth. This was a subtle temptation, for He had come to es tablish His kingdom on earth. It was the temptation of power and in volved the putting of Satan in the place of Ood. We are not to suppose that the temptations of Jesus were not genuine. He was human as well as dlvino, and these temptations were the battles between the two natures for supremacy, and the divine tri umphed. Jesus' ministry extended over parts of at least three years. The first year was the year of beginnings. At Cana of Galilee He performed His first miracle. At Jerusalem He ac complished His first reform by driv ing out of the temple the money changers. His first recorded discourse was contained In th conversation with Nicodemus. His first great min istry was iD Judea. It was during this year that He began gathering about Him a body of disciples. It was from among these disciples that He afterwards chose 12 to be apostles. The second year was the year in which He laid down the great funda mental principles of the kingdom of Heaven. These are contained mninly in the Sermon on the Mount. Very briefly in the Heatitudes Jesus points out those who will come into the kingdom. The third year was one of many notable events, ond early in it there began to show signs of gathering op position. It was during this year that John the Baptist was beheaded. Then we have the rejection of Jesus at Nazareth, the sending forth of the Twelve and the feeding of the five thousand. The main discourses of this year were: On the Sabbath, on hu mility, on welcoming sinners, to the rich young ruler and the talk at the home of Zaccheus. The notable para bles uttered included that of vthe great aupper, the lost sheep, the lost coin, the prodigal son, the unjust steward, tbe rich man and Lazarus, and tho pounds. It was in this year that His transfiguration occurred. Blta of Troth. When you open your heart to lust, love will leave your life. Fidelity to old truths demands hos pitality to new ones. It takes more than a high price to make a thing highly precious. A man'a wealth may be measured by his capacities, not by his coin. There is only ona single step from tha level rock over tha precipice of ruin. If men put more sense into their sacred service tha world would put more faith ia their sanctity.
